Harry Buchanan’s Thursday Greyhound Best Bets


Race 2 No. 6 Zen Tokyo

No luck last week when spat out the back at the first turn. Ran a couple of good races prior and continues to improve although needs to do something here. Capable at good odds to hit the frame.

Race 3 No. 7 Zen On

Kennel mate to previous who can go well here. Ran two good races at this track and trip her last few and is much better boxed wide here. She needs to get into the race earlier but she does finish off strongly if close enough turning and a place heavy play for her.

Race 4 No. 8 Dozer Can Browse and No. 3 Dr Jimmy

The 8 stepped quickly last start, but could not quite get up there early and was held 3 wide. Pushed back through the turn, but came again in the straight. A chance to cross this time and won’t be caught if she finds the arm. Giving the 3 one more chance after getting into trouble at the first turn last start. Box manners are becoming a concern and needs to step better this time. Can be in the firing line if he does.

Race 6 No. 1 West On Whistle

She’s got her box here and will go close to stepping and holding the front. The drop back to 300 is perfect and only has to replicate her last start early split to be the one they will have to mow down. If she leads clearly it should be over. Should hit the frame at the very least.

Race 8 No. 7 Summer Of Love

Don’t underestimate this girl. Has been mixing her distances but not going that badly. Got warmed up far too late last start and the move to the 488m will be much more to her liking. Races wide so box is not a concern. Can surprise this lot at good odds. Each way for her.


Race 6 No. 2 Osanna Bale

Handy bitch who gets a nice drop in company here and is boxed to give this a shake. Good record track and trip and unbeaten at her only start from the draw. Finishes off her races well and small field perfect and that makes her a top 2 player.

Race 7 No. 2 Kairi Bale

She’s a huge show in this. Desperately unlucky last start when making a fast run after box rise only to be met with a severe check at the first turn. Has been racing much tougher opposition and only needs an ounce of luck to win this or at least hit top two.

Race 8 No. 5 Running Dynasty 

If this was at the Meadows, she would be a living certainty. However she has only had the one start here at Sandown. In saying that she is the best dog in this race and can lead or come from behind and the small field should see her go seriously close if she handles the track.
